Welcome New School Year

Leave a comment

The bell will ring
Come on in
Hopes and goals bring
Students as school begins

Please have a seat
I’m glad you’re here
It’s wonderful to meet
It’s a brand new school year

If last year disappointed
Leave it far behind
It’s not so much important
Those marks, they don’t define

I have so much to teach
So many things to learn
There’s lots of goals to reach
Many pages we have to turn

Fear not my students
I will lead the way
We’ll explore many subjects
And learn more every day

Please come in, you’re invited
The school year’s just begun
I’m so thrilled, delighted
We’re going to have so much fun

Birthday Poem for Matt

Leave a comment

One of my students has been asking for a birthday poem all year. His birthday was this month so this is what I wrote him. 

Happy birthday!

You’re a man now

Go out in the world

And make it somehow
Some days will be tough

Others wonderful

Sometimes life’s exciting 

But other times it’s dull
Just be yourself and strive

To always grow and learn

Stay steady on the road of life

Navigate the twists and turns
Don’t ever be afraid to fail

Nor of being heartbroken

Hurts, hurdles and losses

Are the way we keep growing 
Be true to yourself and brace

Carry on no matter what happens

Be strong through storms

And you’ll find love, success and happiness
